Tongue Twisters for Kids
To use FREE tongue twister activities with your students, you will first need to choose which option is best for your learning environment. There are three versions, print only, digital slideshow, and Boom Cards.
If you choose the print only option, you will print either the black and white or colored version of the flashcards. Each flashcard contains a picture and the tongue twister sentence. The black and white version is great for students to engage in coloring the resource. These are perfect for homework activities or individual practice in the classroom or in a speech therapy session. If printing the colored version, I suggest printing on a sturdy paper (like card stock) and laminating. That way your students can use the cards session after session and you can use them student after student, year after year.
Tongue Twister Games
Using the print only option provides the opportunity to play games with the flashcards.
- Choose to play tongue twister memory with your students or go fish using the cards. To play memory, you will choose a small set (or all of the cards depending on student skill level and age) of the cards to use. Mix the pictures and sentence cards up and lay them all face down. Take turns with your student (or your students can take turns together) trying to make a match (picture and sentence). Once all of the cards have been matched, the student with the most cards is the winner! To play go fish, follow the rules of the original game.
- You can just use the flashcards instead of a standard card set. For this game, I suggest leaving the picture attached to the sentence. Then print two copies of the flashcards to mix them together as a “deck”. Students take turns asking for a certain tongue twister from the other student until one student makes all their matches. The student with the most cards at the end is the winner. Having students orally ask for the tongue twister give students ample opportunity to read these silly tongue tying twisters.
Both digital options can be used in a variety of ways as well. The digital slideshow is a great resource for a whole class or large speech therapy group. This resource allows you to post the tongue twisters on your computer or projectable learning board for everyone to see. Make it into a game to see who can say the tongue twister first/fastest or practice reading it as a group.
Boom Card learning is a fun and interactive way that students can independently practice these tongue twisters. Students can practice reading the cards out loud. This gives you and your students an oral assessment and/or practice. *You will need to have a Boom account set up to use this resource.*
Word of Warning
When using the Tongue Twister for Kids resource, it is important to be careful about client selection. Do not choose a client who has severe articulation deficits and could feel defeated if they can’t say a tongue twister. But these are perfect for kids to have fun with in speech therapy.
